Sample text

Because bilingual education and language minority students’ rights emerged from Civil Rights Era litigation and legislation (Crawford 1996; Spring 1997), the emphasis is not in the first place educational (based on how one’s linguistic proficiencies might impact one’s education), but rather legal, focusing on whether or not one belongs in a category and therefore qualifies for (or historically and politically speaking, has a right to) particular services. And, almost as a precursor to more recently enacted time limits on welfare benefits, many state definitions have included a time component: despite excellent research documenting the fact that development of sufficient proficiency to close the achievement gap between nativeand non-native-English speakers is likely to require 7–9 years (Thomas and Collier 1997), three years was a common limit, and the recently passed Unz initiative in California limits services to one year.

English schools were expected to continue teaching history, geography, design and technology, art, music and physical education—but to use their discretion over the time allocated and coverage attempted. The purpose of this reduction of National Curriculum requirements was expressed in terms of the government’s determination to ensure that all children would leave primary school equipped with the necessary competence in the basics of literacy and numeracy. 17 Patricia Broadfoot and Andrew Pollard Taken in the context of the various policy initiatives of the last ten years or so, the reduction of National Curriculum specification may be seen as an extremely significant development heralding the end of a particular policy chapter.

Through persistent selective inattention to available evidence in public debates, we as a society have chosen not to know, and the logic or meaning embedded in the structure of assessment policies, programmes and practices facilitates this choice more often than it challenges it. Consideration of the role of assessment policies and practices in the education of students who are not monolingual English-speakers can elucidate both the political and educational dilemmas facing language minority communities in the USA and the failure of the mental measurement movement to deliver on its promise of ensuring that a rational, equitable and effective set of educational programmes and practices can be developed for all learners.
